Celtic La Tene Sword
This sword was made during a study of Iron Age Celtic swords taught by Peter Johnsson. The blade's dimensions are based upon the archaeological documentation of the La Tene find in Switzerland. The handle is an anthropomorphic-style that is plausible for the blade, as organic material rarely survives.
The blade is made of 80CRV2 given a salt-pot heat treat and is 30" long, with the handle being made of walnut, buffalo horn, bronze, and steel; it's 5.5". It comes with the wooden display box shown.
This sword has been test-cut to ensure sharpness and resilience. As a carbon steel, it will rust if not taken care of. Recommended to keep a light coat of Renaissance Wax on all steel parts.
